    Can the Falcons Nullify Calvin Ridley's Contract if He Doesn't Return This Year? Black Friday Q&A

    Can the Falcons Nullify Calvin Ridley's Contract if He Doesn't Return This Year? Black Friday Q&A

    Aaron answers listener questions, including on Calvin Ridley's potential future and why the Atlanta Falcons should be a lot more worried about Jalen Mayfield than Kaleb McGary along their offensive line.

    First, he breaks down what are the salary cap and contract ramifications of Calvin Ridley being on the team's Non-Football Injury list and what would happen if he did not return to the team this season due to his ongoing mental health issues.

    Then, Aaron breaks down why he gives Mayfield more grief than McGary and why contrary to popular opinion, the Falcons' right tackle has in fact shown progress over the past three years.

    Finally, he discusses whether the improved defensive performance in Week 11 against the New England Patriots is meaningful for Dean Pees' Falcons unit, as well as whether or not the team should be looking for new options at quarterback, how the Falcons talent level compares to the Las Vegas Raiders offense, and what his ideal Thanksgiving meal would be.

    Can the Falcons Get Right vs. Jaguars? Week 12 Crossover Preview with Locked On Jaguars

    Can the Falcons Get Right vs. Jaguars? Week 12 Crossover Preview with Locked On Jaguars

    Aaron is joined by Tony Wiggins (Locked On Jaguars) to preview the Week 12 matchup between the Atlanta Falcons and Jacksonville Jaguars. 

    They discuss what’s at stake for both teams entering the weekend and if either team can get their season back on track after recent struggles. Later, they discuss Trevor Lawrence’s development this year and whether he’s being held back by the disarray involving the Urban Meyer-led Jaguars coaching staff. Then, they get into discussions of where to land on Arthur Smith’s first year thus far as the Falcons head coach, the Falcons’ talent level, Calvin Ridley’s possible return and whether or not the team has buyer’s remorse over their decision to select Kyle Pitts over a quarterback in the 2021 NFL Draft.

    No Timetable on When Calvin Ridley Will Return to the Falcons

    No Timetable on When Calvin Ridley Will Return to the Falcons

    Aaron reacts to the lack of updates on the ongoing absence of wide receiver Calvin Ridley (mental health) and not knowing when he'll make his triumphant return to the Atlanta Falcons lineup.

    He also discusses the lack of updates on swing tackle Matt Gono's (undisclosed/neck) status, leading him to discuss his potential future in Atlanta, as well as what plans the Falcons may have in store along the offensive line. That of course leads to the inevitable discussion of the team's current starters at right tackle and left guard in Kaleb McGary and Jalen Mayfield, and whether or not the team will express patience in developing them further in 2022 or look to upgrade either spot next offseason.

    Then, he breaks down the loss of punter Dustin Colquitt to the reserve/COVID-19 list and how that potentially impacts their matchup in Wek 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Week 11 All-22 Review: Can Falcons Upgrade Trenches With More Talent?

    Week 11 All-22 Review: Can Falcons Upgrade Trenches With More Talent?

    Aaron shares one of his key takeaways from watching the All-22 film from the Atlanta Falcons' 25-0 Week 11 loss to the New England Patriots last Thursday night, focusing on the struggles of center Matt Hennessy and the team's poor pass protection.

    But that leads him into a conversation looking at the parallels between the 2021 Falcons team and that of the 2015 team to see if Arthur Smith & Co. can have a comparable jump in play come 2022 if they receive a similar talent infusion as the aforementioned team did in the 2016 offseason. He compares and contrasts the two years to see if Smith is getting the most out of his players as former Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan did six years ago.

Without question the most comprehensive coverage of the team in ANY format. Host is immensely knowledgeable and entertaining (especially when he goes on one of his famous rants, which ironically are more informational than visceral). I would absolutely recommend this show for any fan of the Falcons or, really anyone who appreciates thorough football coverage.
